MIRAMSHAH: The political administration imposed a curfew in North Waziristan on Monday for an indefinite period after a bomb attack left two security men injured.

Officials said a military vehicle was targeted with an improvised explosive device planted on the under-construction Bannu-Ghulam Khan road. The vehicle was partially damaged and two troops were injured.

The army’s Frontier Works Organisation is building the highway to connect the Indus Highway with the Ghulam Khan, a town along the border with Afghanistan.

A few mortar shells were also fired by unidentified men which landed near Machus village.

After the incident, the political administration imposed the curfew for an indefinite period. Meanwhile, residents of Machus village fearing a military action have started evacuating to nearby villages.—Pazir Gul
